representation issues you observed. Examples of what to look for include cultural ethnocentrism,

the message, language, images, or techniques used to create message, and the interpretation
that an affected audience may derive from it. Support your answers with specific ideas from the
materials. (2 pages–24 points)

society does this movie bring to light? What insights did you gain from the movie about this issue?
